Your grade school English teacher would be pleased!
Do you remember all the various "compositions" and "stories" we had to write back in grade school?! Some of us may have hemmed and hawed at the thought, not even imagining that later in life, writing would be an essential part of our work! Of course, we really don't use the term "compositions" anymore as much as we do "blogs."
I LOVED ENGLISH CLASS!
I actually LOVED to write "compositions" in school and English was always my best subject. (Math, not so much!) Writing would take me to so many different places--I could go anywhere I wanted to go! This felt great as a kid, and actually as an adult, too! (We should all be like children!)
A LIFETIME AGO.
I remember Miss Dixon, my third grade teacher, pulling me aside one day. She commended me on my latest English Composition paper, admiring the characters I thought up--we had to write a story of some sort. She told me that if I worked hard, I had the potential of becoming an author some day. An author--really?
ENCOURAGEMENT GOES A LONG WAY!
Well, with that tiny bit of encouragement within a 5-minute conversation--years later, I did just that! I wrote a children's series that was chosen and published. Three of the ten books I'm writing are on shelves.
So, remembering back to your elementary days, I'll bet you never realized you'd be at such a place comsumed in writing, writing and more writing! If your English teacher could see you now!
WHY IS IT CRUCIAL TO USE PROPER ENGLISH?
On this post, I'd also like to point out that proper English, Spelling and Grammer are all vital parts of writing blogs! One of my daughters is a teacher and emphasizes this practice to her students every day.
Did you know that your blog will rank much higher using proper English, spelling words correctly and practicing good grammar? Google searches out sites that abide by these guidelines! It's TRUE! Fortunately for us, there's a great tool called Spell-Check!
Also, AffParlnc suggests to "install Grammarly on your computer. This checks the grammar, spelling and word use." (comment below).
WRITING REALLY MEANS TYPING.
I actually prefer writing to typing. It is a more personal way, and the old-fashioned way, to prepare a story or literature. Putting the pen to paper develops in-depth concentration for some reason. I guess I like to write because I always used paper growing up--and not a computer.
HOW IS YOUR ETIQUETTE?
My Mother was the one who taught me etiquette--all the proper ways to do everything in life from certain standpoints. She handed me Emily Post's Book of Etiquette and asked me to read it. It had a wealth of influence on me growing up.
TREAT PEOPLE KINDLY.
Etiquette and the way in which we act toward one another also has it's true advantages in this day and age. However, there are also ruthless people on our planet, not living with any guidelines. I feel, especially in our society today, if Emily Post had had a greater influence on our generation, this world in which we live would be a lot better! It's not rocket science!
